Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Climbing beside Sourmilk Gill . . .
some youngsters check out . . .
the pool at the bottom of the waterfall . . .
and I take the opportunity . . .
to try out some different shots . . .
and another waterfall
Looking back down the gill to Grasmere
Trees tell a tale of the wind
Marie forges ahead with Sheila almost hidden in front
Time for lunch . . .
with views across the tarn . . .
in both directions
Wandering along the shore . . .
there are lots of opportunities . . .
to try out different angles . . .
and views of Great Rigg, Fairfield and Seat Sandal
A sheltered spot provides a good reflection . . .
and a nearby feather can't have been in the water for long
Another shot of the tarn . . .
and our route ahead
After a very frosty night there is still ice on the tarn . . .
and signs of snow still linger on the higher fells
A final shot taken from the cairn on the last section of the path around the tarn
